It's National Waiter and Waitress Day, Again!

…are they kidding?
 
This is a great country for so many more reasons than I could ever name, especially here. We celebrate political, religious, cultural and sexual diversity in every form. We even go so far as to name a “special day” after various types of people to remember and commemorate them.

We have the normal days:
  • Presidents Day
  • Mothers Day
  • Fathers Day
  • Grandparents Day
  • D-Day
  • Independence Day
  • Flag Day
  • All Saints Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • New Years Day

Then we have the “cute” days:
  • Groundhog’s Day
  • Girl Scout Day
  • April Fools Day
  • Administrative Professionals Day (give me a break!)
  • Beautician’s Day
  • Take Your Son or Daughter to Work Day
  • Forgot Day (I forgot that one)
  • Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Day
  • National S’mores Day
  • Left Hander’s Day
Now guess what the brain trust of the country came up with?
Drum roll please………..
it's...

The National Waiter and Waitress Day! (May 21)

WHAT! You have got to be kidding!

I have an idea for a day to celebrate waiters and waitresses. How about a few of these winners:

  • Get your butt to work on time day
  • Wear a clean uniform day
  • Take off those gangster earrings day
  • Get the order correct day
  • Don’t let the buffet run out of food day
  • Serve from the left and clear from the right day
  • Offer them a second cup of coffee day
  • Stop complaining day
  • Do your closing side-work before you go home day
  • Punch-out for your shift day
I can go on forever…

How about celebrating by not complaining about the staff on our day. :p

Or,you could do a Hire Some Competent People Day if everyone that works with you sucks that bad, there's a novel concept

There surely are great reasons to celebrate even the simplest things so it would just be ideal to give food servers the recognition that they deserve. :)

Wow, sounds legit. it would be great to let the guests know about it so they should give more tips or act more nicely as compare to regular days. Any special gifts from the owners to the waiters/waitress will motivate them to work more happily.

I really have no idea that there's also a day for waiters and waitresses aside from Labor Day with the other workers.

Here is my highly opinionated, completely idiosyncratic handicapping of experiences from the National Restaurant Association Show in United States. The candidates for inclusion where limited to what I saw and did, so there could be some stellar omissions.
